Designer Tip: Adhere the ornament stickers to burgundy paper and stitch with green sparkles thread before cutting out. I love the sparkle that the thread adds to the ornaments.



  1. Apply brown ink to the binder spine and 1 from the binder spine on the front and back. Cover the front and back with green heritage paper. Apply ink to the binder edges.
  2. Wrap the front of the binder, next to the binding, with lengths of ivory, moss green and brown ribbons. Knot and trim the ends to 1 long. Secure a flower brad to a small ivory tag and adhere from under the knot. Hang the heart charm from the knot.
  3. Adhere corner stickers to the outer corners and use the Crop-A-Dial to punch holes to secure a flower brad near the center of each. Adhere Thankful to the long ivory tag and glue to the center front of the binder.
  4. Inside the binder: Glue 1 wide strips of green paper to the binder inside front and back to cover any brad prongs. Embellish the lined pages with leaf stickers and the pocket pages with Family sticker and 1 wide strips of green paper and border stickers. Tie a charm to a length of brown ribbon and Glue Dot to the edge of the border.
